Rose Syrup

Basic

Rose syrup is really easy to make. It tastes delicious and it can be used in a variety of desserts like ice-creams, yoghurts, drinks, cakes or puddings.
The only limit is your imagination.

Ingredients
3 cups water
4 cups sugar
4 cups fresh rose petals

Preparation

Put water and sugar in a small saucepan. Let it boil. Occasionally stir until sugardissolves. Add rose petals and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Take off the stove and let it steep for about an hour. The longer you leave the rose petals in, the more intense the flavour of your syrup will be. Strain the syrup through a muslin cloth and pour it in a clean glass jar or bottle. You can store the syrup in the fridge for up to a month.
